    The cpu processes tasks in memory. RAM is just part of the memory. So when it processes lots of data, that data will likely get loaded into RAM so it is ready for the cpu, this is to speed things up because ram is faster to access than storage devices. So cpu usage & ram may correlate, but don't have to. May be in some cases like core 2 series, the cpu cache speed is the same as the cpu core speed. It is noted that, cpu cache is such kind of cache used by the central processing unit of a comp to reduce the average time to access memory while ram is a type of computer data storage (temporarily).

    What is the link between...

    What do you mean by "link"?

    For CPU and cache, the 'link' is generally circuitry in the processor chip itself. For CPU and RAM, the "link" is circuitry on the motherboard (the system bus). But that doesn't really seem to be what you're asking.

    This seems like a homework kind of question, but this forum is for problem solving rather than for answering research questions. Research questions should be answered by using search engines such as Google. There doesn't seem to be a problem to solve in the question.

    This seems like a homework or interview question. Where else have you looked for answers? There are many sites out there. This site it  mainly for helping others with solving programming issues and technical issues.
